In April 1994 iniva held its founding symposium titled ‘A New Internationalism’ at the Tate Gallery, which brought together artists, curators, critics, historians and writers to debate about the value, role, and practice of the visual arts within the context of the then emerging concept of a ‘new internationalism’. In the third instalment of our show and tell series we will revisit the symposium and the conversations it facilitated through the archive collection, contemplating how these topics have progressed since 1994.

This talk will be facilitated by our Cataloguing Archivist Niamh Glanville-Frayne. It will take the form of an introduction to the archive collection followed by an open discussion reflecting on the symposium.


It is free to attend this event and everyone is welcome. If you have accessibility requirements or questions please email library@iniva.org.


Niamh Glanville-Frayne is the Cataloguing Archivist at iniva. She is responsible for cataloguing key parts of iniva’s archive to facilitate the access and engagement of significant histories in diverse contemporary art. Niamh’s work is supported by the Archives Revealed Programme.
